Quotes on games and laziness

These are taken from Schott’s Sporting Gaming & Idling Miscellany and seem particularly relevant given my recent poker playing experiences:

“To play billiards well is the sign of an ill-spent youth.” – Herbert Spencer

“It is better to have loafed and lost, than never to have loafed at all.” – James Thurber

“Man is a gaming animal,. He must always be trying to get the better in something or other.” – Charles Lamb

“It is impossible to enjoy idling thoroughly unless one has plenty of work to do.” – Jerome K Jerome
